Completed Projects Highlights

  • Stormwater Retrofit Opportunities on Public Land in Harrisonburg - This study prepared by the Center for Watershed Protection in September 2013. Inventory of stormwater retrofit opportunities was conducted to help Harrisonburg determine the level to which stormwater retrofits on public properties can reduce urban nutrients and sediment. This study has been used to help Harrisonburg initiate the East Market Street Stormwater Regenerative Conveyance project and will inform the Stormwater Improvement and Polluted Runoff Reduction Plan (listed above).
